As the voice of scholarly and academic publishers, STM actively engages with an international community of stakeholders on copyright and legal issues in the digital age, and advocates public policies that recognize the importance of the intellectual contribution of STM publishing to society (quality, innovation, distribution and preservation)

The mission of STM is to create and improve a positive, healthy and sustainable international business environment for STM's worldwide industry by streamlining and enabling the communication path between involved stakeholders. We do so by:

educating key stakeholders about the value that STM publishers add to scholarly communication

advocating the adoption of policies that recognize and support the key role of STM publishers in implementing innovative solutions to advance science and contributing positively to the knowledge society

acting with integrity and honesty in fulfilling our role in the dissemination and discovery of scholarly communication

STM participates in the development of information identification protocols and electronic copyright management systems.
